"All truth goes through three stages. First it is ridiculed. Then it
is violently opposed. Finally, it is accepted as self evident."
"The assumption that animals are without rights and the illusion that
our treatment of them has no moral significance is a positively
outrageous example of Western crudity and barbarity. Universal
compassion is the only guarantee of morality."
~ Schopenhauer, On the Basis of Morality
"Compassion for animals is intimately connected with goodness
of character; and it may be confidently asserted that he who
is cruel to animals cannot be a good man."
